Well, folks, it's finally happened. The moment we've all been waiting for has come at last -- Jennifer Aniston is engaged.
It's official. Her boyfriend of a little over a year, Justin Theroux, asked, and she said yes. His rep told People tonight: "Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage."
And the sound of squealing is echoing throughout the world.
For whatever reason we are weirdly obsessed with Jen's love life and have been since the days of Ross and Rachel. While celebrity engagements are always exciting (okay, not always, but usually), this is huge.

We feel like we know her and have been through so much with her. We've stood by her through her ups and downs, and lambasted the many, many men who did her wrong. Finally, she is getting her happily ever after, and you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who's not happy for her, except perhaps some men who mistakenly thought they still had a chance.
Twitter is blowing up with well wishes such as these:
And on and on.
You know who's probably especially thrilled with news of Jen's engagement though? Kristen Stewart. The poor thing has been beaten up, down, and every which way since the whole cheating scandal broke. Finally the headlines will part, as America's sweetheart bumps her out for a bit at least. I'm thinking she owes Jen a really nice engagement present.
In any case, congratulations to the newlyweds. And phew, good thing that little rumor about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie getting married this weekend didn't turn out to be true. That could have been a little awkward, no?
Are you excited to learn that Jennifer Aniston is engaged?
